As a law-abiding citizen myself, I'm not sure why I find watching someone escaping from the police entertaining - but I do.
Ally Law is a UK urban explorer who spends his days and nights illegally entering various buildings, stadiums, theme parks, etc, exploring them, and then inevitably running from security or the police. He and his crew sometimes escape, but often get caught.
Somehow Ally has become quite famous and every second person seems to know who he is. Many of the security guards he encounters also seem to know him by name.
He is often in court or on bail, and when he needed to raise money for legal costs to fight being banned from posting videos online, he was able to raise 20,000 pounds in just 24 hours.
Here's a few examples of his escapades: INSANE SECURITY ESCAPE!! O2 ARENA SUNRISE CLIMB and CRAZY BRIDGE CLIMB! *POLICE ESCAPE*.
It seems that trespassing is not necessarily illegal in the UK, it's a civil matter, and the police usually let Ally and his mates go, or sometimes charge them (incorrectly) for offences relating to damage or theft. Ally says that he has some civil cases against him for legal fees and costs relating to having them removed from some premises.
If you like Ally's videos you will also find his co conspirators also post videos, and plenty of others like the guy who illegally climbed the Egyptian pyramids.

You may have seen the "reality" TV shows about car repossession, but Reponut is the real "reality".

I must admit to liking a bit of "street scrapping" myself, so I have been enjoying watching other people driving up and down the streets and looking through people's rubbish for items of value.

Lately I've been enjoying watching videos taken on the job by tow/recovery truck operators.
